Yup, We’ll Remember This Mother’s Day

Oh sure I have a few blog posts in the hopper almost ready to post but it would make it look like life was normal in Big Red Kitchen. It’s not. We are all tired here. Stressed. Unsure. Ma and Dad have been here since last Thursday for a week of celebration, visiting with old friends, family time, and spending Mother’s Day together. Mother’s Day was nice- church together, brunch out at a local restaurant, naps, but then Ma didn’t feel well and spent the remainder of the day resting on the couch under a mound of blankets. We cancelled dinner plans with my brother and his family to let Ma rest some more. By 10 that evening I had a house full of paramedics and fire and rescue guys and gals in my house lifting my very sick and disoriented Ma off the kitchen floor where I found her. Even in passing out, she fell with grace and style avoiding head injury or a broken hip. As of right now, she is still in the hospital having every test run, save maybe a pregnancy test! She is feeling a little better and we are hoping it was a simple virus that had knocked her for a loop and she will come home soon. Pray for her. Please.

Have you met my Ma yet? Here she is.

UPDATE- Ma just got discharged and is on her way here to recover some more! Keep praying for a full recovery.
